incredible stuff. the hardest forecast is the new york city because the temperatures are kind of borderline. it may start as snow, go over to rain, a little sleet and back over to snow late. that's why the snow totals for new york, i have them down to six to ten inches. if it's all snow, it could be as much as 14 inches in new york city. that's the big question mark. hartford's going to get nailed, also all the way to southern portions of new hampshire and portland, maine. i mentioned temperatures. notice it's 38 in philly, 34 in baltimore. that's why southwards i don't think you'll get much out of this at all. that's why d.c.'s not getting snow. look how cold it is in the new england area. this is how it plays out. again, the bottom line, the worst of the storm arrives after noon today. so if you're in northern jersey, new york city area, long island, connecticut, hudson valley all the way through eastern mass and rhode island, do not be on the roads after noon today. that's the most important message everyone needs to know because if you do that and you get stuck on the roads, it's going
and they figured they could help the wings. >> up an incredible story. >> i will tell you something. this is a city that has basically made a lot of money off of chicken wings. are you concerned about the run-on that's? >> obviously, whenever there is a high demand on things from you have to be concerned. the friendly we are delighted. we would be crazy if we want to live with that. but it does put some pressure on now. so that is not going to be a problem this sunday. from a consumer standpoint, it might be many prices have gone up about two or 3% across the system. there are a couple of things that happen. they grow chickens and about 40 or 50 days. >> we love our supplier partners, but we are looking at the demand and supply and then we had the drought and corn prices go up. we refer to chickens as corn with wings. it is directly related to the price of corn. should the super bowl fans be worried that they cannot have their chicken wings? they should not be concerned. it's a tremendous value because the restaurant have an reflectiveness i would guess that the chicken wings with the between two a
hometown. chicago. and address the growing gun violence gripping that city. trace gallagher has that part of our story. is he live in los angeles. hey, trace. >> and shannon if you look at the numbers in chicago you can see why the red alert is flashing in that city. look at this. last year there were 506 murders in the city of chicago. that's a 16% increase, a significant increase. take a rook just this year 42 homicides already on the exact same pace as last year. there have been seven murders in chicago in just the past five days. the mayor there rahm immanuel is now flooding the streets with police, taking cops who normally do administrative work and putting them in patrol cars. now, what really brought this to a head is the murder last week of 15-year-old pendleton, an honors student. she performed at events surrounding the inauguration. gunned down in a park near her school. police believe it was a case of mistaken identity. the reverend jesse jackson led a march this weekend to the park where she was shot and killed. jackson is now calling on president obama to step in and help his

the election, they went on with the election anyway. >> this is a black elected member of the city council, is that right? >> that's correct. because of that, he lost his seat. d.o.j. came back -- you know, deemed it, i guess, unconstitutional. and they had to redo. and they had an at-large vote and he was the top vote-getter. it was designed to dilute the black community. >> is this what this case ultimately rests on? perfect for this, i've worked in the court. i've spent some time in the court. how fact down this case seems. it really seems like the court is going to make some determination about this basically sociological fact about the covered jurisdictions which is how much racism is there? how imbedded are these practices? it seems a strange thing for the court to be doing? >> it is a strange thing, chris. what's interesting congress asked all these questions about whether or not racial discrimination is prevalent in the covered jurisdictions. they analyzed looking at the covered jurisdictions versus the uncovered. i know there's rhetoric that he didn't do that. but they did. and co
know that city you know the casinos, bally's, and the bellagio. it appears right at the intersection of las vegas boulevard and flamingo avenue that that taxicab now burnt out, and shots were fired about four hours ago, leaving at least three people dead. we're working through the story along with dave lawrence on the scene in las vegas, kvvu. dave, what are you hearing from police, what happened, who was involved, do we know? >> reporter: well, at this point the suspect, one of the suspect vehicles doing some of the firing along the vegas strip apparently did get away from this scene. they have not released any suspect information from the vehicle or who may have been firing. let me get out of the way. i can show you the vegas strip. this is where three people died this morning and at least three others up injured and headed to the hospital. las vegas metro describes this as a rolling gunbattle along the vegas strip. they believe suspects involved in this shootout ran through a red light at las vegas boulevard and flamingo which led to five cars getting involved in an accident. one
. when you have the most important political city in the country, washington d. c., and the post has been the dominant voice in that city for a long time, members of congress, federal policymakers, whether they want to or not, that is their principal link with print journalism. sure, you get the "times" or the "wall street journal" or the "l. a. times" -- the people, they meet and talk with by that morning, there is the general presumption everybody has read the post. >> everybody has read the post, do they still say that? >> i do not know. probably not. they may very well have glanced at the website, had and look -- had a look at an aggregator. >> how long did you work for the post? >> from 1979 until 1981. >> why did you leave? >> how i went there is kind of fascinating. i had written a couple of op-ed pieces. i had not been in journalism. i was in politics. they approached me and said, would you like to write political editorials for "the washington post?" not knowing any better, i said yes. she said, write a once a week column. so i did that through the campaign of 1980, covering the
's following the investigation for us. what's the latest, brian? >> reporter: one city official tells us this is the most analyzed piece of electricity in history. we do have new information on concerns about the power supply in the month leading up to the super bowl. in the months leading up to super bowl xlvii, there were worries and warnings among superdome officials about the stadium's power situation. that's from memos from the superdome management group. october 15th, 2012, a memo from pat toppler refers to transient spikes in loads in the system that had previously occurred. >> the concern whether the connection point from the grid to the superdome was reliable. this memo says a test determined that the power feeder line had some decay and had a chance of failure. >> a letter five days before that from an outside engineer hired by the superdome said based on test results, the superdome's main and only electrical feed are not sufficiently liable to support the high profile event schedule. >> and in response to that entergy and superdome services constructed a whole new vault that t
as this weekend's huge winter storm blanketed the region from new york to maine. new york city is getting the worst of it all. more than three feet of snow fell in parts of connecticut, rhode island, and massachusetts. cutting power and downing trees. electrical power remains out in nearly 350,000 homes whereas the area this morning. so a lot of cleanup to do there. >>> meanwhile, the political climate has our attention here in washington as the president prepares to deliver his state of the union address tuesday night. as we begins a second term, we're being told he will return to his primary message of how to restore economic growth. we'll talk to both sides this morning. majority leader eric cantor and assistant democratic leader in the senate dick durbin. i want to welcome you back to "meet the press." >> pleasure, david. thank you. >> there are so many areas that are contentious right now, and chief among them is the sequester word. this dirty word in washington, that means automatic spending cuts. it could begin in a matter of weeks with $85 billion in automatic cuts. do you really
pizzay is in vat cal city. dow corning. >> reporter: good morning. a vatican spokesman reviewed that benedict has been wearing a pacemaker for some time and had an operation to replace the battery only three months ago. how much his declining health and the strain of dealing with the leaks and sex abuse scandals is open to speculation. vatican insiders say only a few of his closest aides knew in advance. with his brief announcement in latin, benedict set a modern precedent that ensures his successors can follow the same both. as one put it, he broke a taboo. catholics around the world reacted with surprise, some sadness, but overall there was a sense that benedict had done the right thing for himself and the church. >> it is an act of humility for the pope to realize that he can no longer physically and mentally discharge the duties of his office. >> reporter: even as benedict's legacy is being debated the struggle for succession has begun behind the scenes. [ cheers ] >> reporter: latin americans feel their time has come and there are several strong candi
of this country. and, of course, wolf, on a day like this when there's intense fighting in the city of damascus, that feeling that seems to be moving closer, the conflict is getting worse, it's something weighing more heavily on the minds of the people in damascus. >> fred, you've been in damascus for a few days. give us a sense how close the fighting is getting, right into the heart of the capital. >> well, i'll tell you something, wolf, today was the most intense fighting that we've seen since we got here a couple of days ago and people who have been speaking here from damascus say this is the worst fighting that they've seen since the conflict began more than two years ago. when they woke up, artillery was coming down pretty much the entire time. the past couple of days there's been a shell fired every five, six, seven minutes. today there was a barrage. i made it to a suburb south of damascus. when we made it there, we sort of filmed what was going on. you could just see plumes of smoke over that town. you could clearly see that a lot of very heavy ordinance had been dropped on that place a
is a dad here in the inner city of the district of columbia, who all he wanted was to find a safe place for his kids to learn. he's got four kids. and he discovered after having fought with the local school system the opportunity scholarship program here in d.c., something that speaker boehner has been an extraordinary champion on. and he realized the benefits of that. and now all of his kids have had an opportunity to start in that school. one is at the university of the district of columbia today. i talked about working parents who are hourly wage earners who are having a tough time getting through the month right now. those are the things that people that we've got to be concerned about. i don't think that joseph kelly, the dad here in the district of columbia, cares one ioata about rebranding the republican or the democratic party. i think what we care about and what he cares about are his kids. that's what washington needs to remember. these are real problems. these people are having a tough time. and we ought to be about providing relief to those who don't have a job and to those
way tonight in new orleans. alex is joining us next from new york city. caller: my comment is -- i am not particularly a sports fan. it seems very repetitive back and forth. as far as the regulation -- my observation, not just about football but hockey and also even baseball -- people seem to like people getting hit and getting beat up. they even like people looking kind of distorted like when they take drugs. i would be in favor if there could be a lot to prevent head injuries or young people being persuaded to do drugs to get onto teams or whatever. it is my commentary to my fellow americans the sunday morning that, it is like gladiatorial combat. . "the hunter games." it is almost like a freak show you enjoy watching human suffering. that is my cheery comment. host: thank you for the call. on the twitter page, there is this. back in 2009, tiki barber testified on the issue of head injuries at the high school and professional lover -- level. [video clip] >> you hear the file but comes from people who think the nfl is not addressing this issue. at the end of the day, it is a player p
among the free blacks in particular, of raising money for the downtrodden in the city. and during the war she was a volunteer nurse. so what can i tell you? i think she really personified a lot of the things we think of today as the role of the first lady. >> who enjoys the of first lady the most? if you want to use the word "detested," who would you put on that list? >> julia grant. suddenly she had a pedestal to be on and she absolutely adored it. she loved it and try to persuade him to run for a third term. he didn't, she didn't like it. she tells how they got on the train to leave washington and she fell and wept and wept. she claimed her place in later life and would come back in great glory to the white house. i do not know if anyone hated it. mrs. franklin pierce came in under horrible circumstances, having lost two sons. one of the way to the white house. -- one in a train wreck on the way to the white house. she was a pretty good politician and she was as smart lady and was involved in political things that she just did not have the heart for it. at one point she fell in
because it happened very quickly without a single fire shot. we know what happened next. out into the city they went. this is where it gets quite fascinating. once they came out of the airport, somewhere down around here, look at all of the art rarelies that they could have gone to. if you think about it, just driving 30 miles per hour in five minutes they could have been beyond that radius in almost any direction, wolf. it's been an extraordinary story of how they were organized, the whole thing from beginning to end took about 11 minutes and then they were gone without a trace. they found a burned out vehicle that they think is connected to this but they don't know if it was the direction they went or anything else. the bottom line is, the diamonds are gone. if you want a sense of what $50 million in diamonds looks like, take a look at this. this bag has half a million small diamonds in it. if you want to have $50 million worth of diamonds, what you have to have is that many bags full of diamonds like that. so it's an extraordinary robbery but getting rid of it, wolf, will be the real ch
. in the city of milwaukee, they have involved 112 private schools in the program, nearly 5000 students. $6,500 per student. the total cost, i assume annual, 164 -- $154 million. >> it depends on how you look at it. milwaukee past its first voucher program in 1989. it served as a model for a lot of other state voucher programs across the country. it serves over 24,000 students. there was a study that came out a couple years ago by the state that found vouchers were performing at the same level as traditional public schools in milwaukee. a more recent study out of the university of arkansas showed positive results for students with vouchers. i believe the program has been shown to offer pretty strong results in terms of graduation rates, but the milwaukee voucher program has been held up as the model, and the opinions of it will break down exactly along the lines of a voucher programs all over. clearly, governor walker believes if parents are buying into this program and it is proving popular, it will prove popular in other school districts around wisconsin. we will see if the legislature is
advantage of it, without unduly exposing it to our adversaries. let me move on to private city and civil liberties. anytime you're talking about sharing the information, sharing information with respect to cybersecurity, you have to be conscious of privacy and civil liberties and you have to make sure those are protected. that has been a priority of the administration and it continues to be so. so, while there are perhaps fewer concerns in the executive order because the focus is on sharing information outward, we have established a robust, oversight regime and in particular we have highlighted the fips. that is the government speak, right? if i don't insert an acronym every two or three minutes it is just not fun. the fips are the fair information practice principles. these date back to the 1970's when they were developed dealing with health records. essentially it is what are the principles you need to use in considering privacy with respect to information? so we think it's important we establish these as a one of the principles that we're going to follow with respect to sharing inform
against gun control. gun safety. and questions were raised at the time of the oklahoma city bombing. he had a lot of ties to militia movements. he received a coded message presumably alerting his office or whoever whoever the fax was addressed to, that something was coming. there was an investigation about did he turn over that message quickly enough to the authorities. he eventually was cleared but there was a cloud of suspicion. there were articles and articles written about it. this is a guy whose ideologiology guns and militia fits squarely in the ted nugent view. in this cases, it is not surprising at all that he would bring them. >> bill: we'll continue to take your comments at bpshow and by phone at 1-866-55-press. unless john boehner steps up and says wait a minute, we do have certain standards here, ted nugent will be in the gallery tonight at the state of the union. i dare him. you know also -- you know what already pisses me off is the cameras will be focused on him and when president obama is talking about gun control, it will be a split screen. president obama and ted nugen
murders, has barricaded himself in a cabin in the big bear lake area, 80 miles east of the city. when police showed up, gunfire broke out. ey received information from the person reporting that the stolen vehicle was stolen by an individual that appeared to be very similar to christopher dorner. immediately we conducted a ground and air search for this vehicle. they were able to locate it at highway 38 and glass roads where the suspect in the vehicle fled into the forest. shortly thereafter, this individual barricaded himself in one of the cabins there and an exchange of gun fire occurred. during that exchange of gun fire, two officers were injured. >> sreenivasan: we get more from public radio. the reporter spoke to us a short while ago from the scene of the activity. frank, thanks for joining us. bring us up to speed. what happened today? >> well, it was in the early afternoon that a police got reports of a truck being commandeered in the big bear area. now, this suspect's truck had been found there a few days earlier burned out. this truck that he was driving apparently commandeere
that wisconsin is a state and that there are cities inside of it. if i say i like wisconsin there are a whole bunch of interest that passed it off of that. he need to understand that hierarchy of objects. you also need to understand how they relate to each other. >> does this personalization become complementary to search, does that create a new paradigm? the most recent thing that any of the large internet companies have come out with is this social search that facebook has introduced. it is that a stepping stone? >> there is the social graph. what i am talking about, it will give way to the interest graph. you know this set of things i am interested in, you know the other set of things other people are interested in. they aren't just based on, did they go to the same school, do they work in the same place, they are based on, are they interested in the same things? we can create personalization technologies because you can see what people are doing and provide you with information. there's also a very powerful social component because we can show you interests you may have in common with peo
. host: you cannot find a minimum wage job? caller: jobs in my city are very hard to come by unless you know exactly where to look. i have three scholarships. i'm trying to get a job on campus to help pay my debt. jobs are in very high demand. it is difficult. i am trying. hopefully, with the president's new policies, this could be more of an easy process. host: what is the minimum wage in oregon? caller: it was recently raised by our governor to $8.95. i cannot be certain about that. i've only read one article. host: i know there are websites out there that look at the minimum wage across the states. here's the new york times -- different economic arguments for minimum-wage, something that surely will be debated in the days after last night's state of the union address. on twitter -- let's go to brian in maryland, democrat. caller: good morning. president obama's speech was refreshing. as a proud member of the u.s. armed services that served our country more than 20 years, but we are focusing on domestic agendas and trying to invest money right here in the united. united so that was ve
a few years ago i found myself sitting next to the mayor of salt lake city and he was a nice guy and we started talking about what i do for a living and i told him i work to encourage young women and girls to run for a political office. why, he said? which stumps me because in my world, the question of why we need more women, is not a question but how do we get more women there. he went on to say i have two daughters, i have a wife, i have a more, he said, i know what women need and what can women do in office that i can't do? and it was an interesting question and he had no idea what a can of worms he was opening by getting into this conversation with me because i really believe no matter how well intentioned a man in office is, his decisions are never going to be as strong if you have men and women legislating together. i'm happy to say in the years i started doing this work is the world has come around to this idea, the idea is we need to add women to leadership, not because it's fair or it's the right thing to do but because adding more women to leadership is going to make stronger
. peter, calling from new york city. hey, peter. >> caller: hey bill, good morning. how are you? >> bill: thanks for joining us. what's your take on all of this? >> caller: my take is that i'm actually alarmed that we think that we can't cut $85 billion out of a $3.6 trillion budget or to put it another way about 1/3 of 1% of the $17 trillion gross domestic product and think that this is going to crater our economy. if our economy is that weak, then there's been no recovery and what is the point anyway? if we're really concerned about the cuts, bill, why don't you advocate the president give all of the different departments to take the cuts and allocate it so it's best used so it is not across the board. >> bill: first he can't do that. of the sequester is legislation passed by congress which calls for across-the-board cuts. the president can't unilaterally rewrite legislation. so that's the first thing my response to you peter is first of all, i would say -- the congressional budget office says it is going to shrink the economy by 1.3%. it is going to reverse our economic recovery and i
and our villages and our cities across this country are all full -- are all full. i would love to have president obama interact more and let's stop having suspensions. they say we will not deal with the budget crisis now. we will wait until march to handle things. that is not the way that we can handle this country right now. all american taxpayers are having our own fiscal cliff problems and that cannot be no more. our taxes are going up, our property taxes and food taxes and any kind of hikes of taxes is a challenge for the american workers. host: thanks for your call. guest: i think the sentiment that obama should roll up his sleeves and get to work with congress is one that many members of congress actually would agree with including democrats. he has a little reputation of not reaching out to and interacting with members of congress and a way that hurts his agenda on the hill. at the same time, one chamber has not done a budget for four years and that is the senate and they decided politically it does not make sense and now they have changed that and they will do it. host: what ab
been, we have a devastating level of youth unemployment in cities like yours. let's focus on that because we love and care for people. we do what is good and political but may not be honest economics. host: current federal minimum wage is $7.25. bob in chesapeake, virginia, independent line. caller: representative, the minimum-wage is used as a political football. i think would be a good thing if we would set the minimum wage on all of the jobs in the country as a national need and a global competitive need instead of letting the minimum wage be brought up every so often as a political football. they need to set the minimum wage on all the jobs. then they can eliminate the union hassles and we can be more globally competitive. guest: you are correct it is used as a political football to get you some wonderful movement on your political base. if we were to think like an economist, you would not have a minimum wage. you would allow the market to generate those wages. if you're going to move to a minimum wage, are you going to have the training wage and for those folks who ar
